What causes a chronic bacterial prostatitis?

Not all prostatitis: Is bacterial. Perhaps prostate and seminal vesicle congestion may be irritating? We call prostatis when we cannot make a more specific diagnosis, and you suffer irritative effects. Commonly, anti-biotics are used, and anti-inflammatories. But sex, too much or too little, has no established role. Having sex can elevate the psa test, however. ...Read more

Can prostatitis cause bloating and constipation, lower middle stomach pain or what else can it be?

Here are some ...: Prostatitis alone should not cause bloating & constipation, which are related with GI functional disorders, although it may cause some perineal discomfort if the diagnosis is correct. Of note, prostatitis has been overused and even misused for men with vague mild symptoms related with urination. So, seek professional evaluation and counseling so to avoid unnecessary confusion & anxiety. ...Read more

Is there any link between acute-chronic prostititis pain and perineum/scrotal pain, constipation and mild alcohol consumption? Will alcohol worsen it?

There is a link: Perineal pain in men is often caused by prostatitis, due to the closeness of the prostate to the pelvic floor. We call that feeling tenesmus, a feeling like you have to strain to move bowels, though no stool is present. Add a fiber supplement like psyllium and drink more water. While alcohol won't make it worse, it will conteract the fiber which needs water to work. Drink more water. ...Read more
